Maytag LA503 Loud squeak-squawk-squeal on spin stop

I have heard you can "oil" some models just a tiny bit to remove the spin stop squeal. Is this true? if so, does this model have the same issue? If so, where exactly do you "oil" it???

Put a few drops of 90wt gear oil in the brake lip. I used a syringe.

Usually over the lip.
You can see it from underneath through the openings on the pulley.
